International Criminal Court revitalized

By | 31 May 2010

31 May – 11 June 2010 are the dates for the Review Conference, when state signatories and stake holders (such as NGOs)  can take stock of the years since the Rome Statute, and, where considered necessary, decide on amendments to the treaty.

The Conference website is waiting to spring into action, although proposals for amendments are already there. A live blog session is promised … and there is already a play list in the dedicated YouTube video libary, which will, I imagine, increase considerably over the next few days.

Students  often start their studies on this court with  An introduction to the International Criminal Court by William Schabas (3rd ed., CUP, 2007), but monographs on this Court continue to appear. For example, the LawBod has in the interim received The International Criminal Court : a commentary on the Rome Statute / William A. Schabas (OUP, 2010),  Governance, order, and the International Criminal Court : between realpolitik and a cosmopolitan court / edited by Steven C. Roach (OUP,2009) and Building the international criminal court / Benjamin N. Schiff (CUP,2008).
